New Year 04:48
It’s the New Year And it’s time to put away my sorrows Just like you used to say I’ll save them for a rainy day I’ll put on a smile for tomorrow I’ll show you how strong I can be And whether it works We’ll just have to wait and see It’s the New Year Am I cleaning up the wrong apartment You lived here for so long It echoes with a lonely song Last night I was dreaming two lovers Left love and the old year behind You can call me sometime If you are so inclined
THE FEEL OF THE BLUES WORDS & MUSIC BY SU TERRY So this is how it looks When a cloud steals the sun away So this is how it tastes To swallow your own tears And now I know the scent That follows every rotten deal This is the Feel of the Blues Does anybody mind If I moan on a moonlit night Does anybody know What time the tide comes in Is anyone afraid To find the world may not be real This is the Feel of the Blues Every mornin’ And evenin’ They got me inside Whether wakin’ Or sleepin’ There’s nowhere to hide Don’t tell me about love Your advice is a little late Don’t tell me about fate ‘cause words won’t dull the pain don’t tell me not to cry that’s how a broken heart can heal This is the Feel of the Blues
